( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus
.s. as the u.s. tries to navigate between clean energy and economic growth, as well as energy dependence versus drilling, the president's upcoming decision is increasingly seen as a crucial test by all sides. >> thousands of people marched on the national mall in washington yesterday, braving a cold winter wind to take part in what organizers called the biggest climate rally in u.s. history. they called for president obama to reject the proposed keystone excel oil pipeline. >> the reason i came here today was because i feel like president obama... i feel like if we make a statement with our numbers and our passion that he'll get the message. >> woodruff: the keystone project is designed to move crude oil hundreds of thousands of barrels a day that would be extracted from the oil sands of northern alberta in western canada. the oil would be transported across several u.s. states to refinerees and ports in texas. the company behind the 1700-mile pipeline, trans-canada, has altered the route to largely by-pass a water deposit in nebraska. but protest organizers insisted the pipeline still threaten

to achieve real growth until our economy. one of the best ways to encourage growth is through our energy industry. god also blessed america with abundant coal and natural gas. instead of wasting more money on companies let's open up federal land for exploration. we can grow our energy industry, it will make us energy independent and it will help bring administering back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will make it easier for smaller businesses to hire and grow. we agree with the president, we should lowerer our corporate tax rate so companies will bring their money and jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow the economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attack the best and brightest. -- attract the best and the brightest. first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. helping the middle class grow also requires an education system that brings the skills that jobs entail. we need to incentivize local schools and career training. we nee

care, high energy race. is that the kind of government we want to buy a? is that the government we want to put our money and? i don't think so. we've got to step back and responsibly address those. do we believe there's appropriate things for government to spend money on? absolutely. i didn't support the stimulus package of 2009 because i thought it would do what he did, which is a solo bunch of money and not get remarkable results for our economy. in fact come in at her harmed her ability to come out of the recession. one of the things they could have done had it been spent and a different way would have been to revitalize the infrastructure of our country. water, sewer, rose, huge investments. but a fraction is used for something resulting in the public goods. so there are things government ought to spend money on an infrastructure is one of them. >> david morgan with readers. i would like to know if you expect the north korean nuclear test to accelerate efforts to get a deal done on the sequester.

[ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic punch. >> here's an idea that governor romney and i actually agreed on last year. let's tie the minimum wage to the cost of living so that it final becomes a wage you can live on. >> the republican presidential candidate may have backed the idea but that didn't stop the rest of the party from jumping all over the president. everyone from john boehner to marco rubio called raising the minimum wage a job-killing
obama should be doing everything we can to become energy independent including building the keystone xl pipeline from candidate. >> that is the harbinger whether we need all of the above strategy or if it's campaign rhetoric. activists are determined to block the pipeline and held demonstration to demand they prevent the construction. canada on the other hand argues the u.s. should want oil from a reliable ally. >> people protesting to get more attention in the media than 65% of miles pe americans t prefer to get their oil from canada rather than venezuela or the middle east. >> the administration has said it would likely make a decision by the end of march. either way, it will unleash torrent of criticism. >> bret: jim, thanks. we'll talk about that with the panel as well. do you think the keystone xl pipeline will ever become a reality? let me know on twitter. follow me @brettbaier. those who support chuck hagel as defense secretary indicate they will likely allow a vote after they return from recess next week. south carolina's grahamm from says he will take hagel at his word he does
'll be in the areas of things like manufacturing and infrastructure, some education reform proposals, and some energy that will also help create jobs. these are very commonsense initiatives. they're things that certainly have had a lot of bipartisan support in the past, and we're hopeful that we've started to make progress in working with congress and getting some things done and we're hopeful that they'll take this idea seriously. >> will they be paid for? will he propose ways to pay for his proposals? >> yes, yes. everything -- every initiative that is in the speech is paid for. it will not add a dime to the deficit. >> and what about cutting the deficit? jean spurling told joe scarborough that the president knows that he has to propose something. he has to make some proposals on entitlements. is he going to be that specific tonight? >> well, he has a specific -- we have a proposal that is on the table from the fiscal talks that we had with congress that has spending cuts that does do some entitlement reforms as well as raising revenue by closing loopholes to the -- that's still very much on the ta

that trend and take one oracle -- 1-2% of our economy every year to convert to green energy, we would be much further ahead. i'm so tired of the republican party to always be anti-green. we have an issue on this planet. i would like to see some things done in regard to that. green energy is important, and we should pursue it. thank you so much. guest: nobody is saying that it is not important. what they are seeing is that the federal government does not need the department of energy -- it does not need to be putting money into loan programs for companies like solyndra and fiskar. others -- they have gone bankrupt the. have gotten hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars for loan programs and all of those companies that got those loans with that taunt of money have gone bankrupt. something is wrong with the vetting process and something is wrong with technology that it is not working in the marketplace. i had solar panels on my house in tennessee as a test keys thursday as a test case 30 + years ago. they're looking to see if we could get enough heat units per day in solar panels. we never got
to dissipate that energy somehow and the dissipation goese di into heating the air around it as it plunges in. but it also goes into breakingeaki up the meteor, so it breaks upet into smaller pieces. that helps to dissipate thee energy. the reason why it was spread over such a large area is because the measurement on the contrail behind it is about 300ehind it i miles long. this is essentially skippingping into the atmosphere so it's going to create a shock wave like a sonic boom, that rolls along the surface of the planet for quite some distance. that would create the damagee over such a wide area. >> >> mason: there was another close encounter today as an asteroid passed within 17,200ide the miles of earth, well inside the orbit of some of our satellites.these ev are these events related or is this a cosmic coincidence? >> well, you know, there are allon in th sorts of events going on in the solar system. it just so happens in coincidence that these two events happened today. we had the one that we already knew about for quite some time and this one that just sort of shows up out of no pla
